Big T Colorado up slightly this a.m.
Earlier this morning, we saw run-of inflows to Lake Estes jump up. As a result, the water level elevation at Lake Estes has come up a few feet and we are increasing releases from Olympus Dam to the Big Thompson Canyon.
Flows in the Big T canyon are increasing from around 125 cubic feet per second to about 225 cfs.
We might only need to keep the 225 cfs release for a few hours. It is possible we could cut the release back slightly before noon.
I'll be in the office all day Monday if there are additional questions.
Have a great rest of your weekend!
